What is this?

"Black bodies" refers to a term rooted in the African diaspora experience, wherein the Black body is seen as a specific site of struggle, both within and beyond the scope of slavery. It is a crucial source of catalyzing new models of political, economic and cultural justice, and a powerful terrain for studying the origins of communal resilience. Here, Black bodies are understood to be a powerful symbol for the struggles of black people within neo-colonial structures, representing a persistent search for creative freedom within oppressive forces. Beyond that, it is a political phenomenon, where the Black body carries with it the power of collective imagination, resilience, and the capability for redefining the very terms of racial logic.
